I was sitting around the other day and thinking “I know a bunch of libraries that provide fantastic open-source software and enhancements but I cannot find anything on their websites about it” and then decided I’d make a page for librarians who were looking at us.
On this page I am going to release a bunch of stuff that we make/edit/create so that anyone can download it and have a play around. This will include:
Our facebook application to search an Amlib catalogue.
Any/all of our customised Amlib reports including the RSS reports and data export reports.
Our booking system for events (which also keeps our info request statistics).
Any/all of our Joomla! enhancements.
I do not know if this would be of use to anyone, but I would be interested in making this page as a kind of “look at what we do” page for other librarians. Offering the software and also some instructions on how we did things may also be a drawcard to the site.
Does anyone else know a library that offers this kind of information on their website? It doesn’t have to be in English. Anyone? At all?
